Human MMP-8 Antibody Summary
Accession # AAZ38714
Please Note: Optimal dilutions should be determined by each laboratory for each application. General Protocols are available in the Technical Information section on our website.
MMP‑8 in Human Breast. MMP-8 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human breast array using Goat Anti-Human MMP-8 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF908) at 15 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Goat HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS008) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Lower panel shows a lack of labeling if primary antibodies are omitted and tissue is stained only with secondary antibody followed by incubation with detection reagents.

MMP‑8 in Jurkat Human Cell Line. MMP-8 was detected in immersion fixed Jurkat human acute T cell leukemia cell line using Goat Anti-Human MMP-8 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF908) at 15 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL001) and counterstained with DAPI(blue). Specific staining was localized to cytoplasm.

Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are a family of zinc and calcium dependent endopeptidases with the combined ability to degrade all the components of the extracellular matrix. MMP-8 (neutrophil collagenase) is expressed in neutrophils, where it is stored in specific granules. MMP-8 release from the neutrophils is stimulated by various factors such as interleukins 1 and 8, TNF-alpha and GM-CSF. MMP-8 is capable of cleaving types I, II and III triple-helical collagen, gelatin peptides, fibronectin, proteoglycans, aggrecan, serpins, beta -casein and peptides such as angiotensin and substance P. In addition to its function in phagocytosis, MMP‑8 has a high capacity for infiltrating connective tissue, and is implicated in the breakdown of the extracellular matrix in diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis. Structurally, MMP‑8 consists of several domains: a pro-domain that is cleaved upon activation, a catalytic domain containing the zinc-binding site, a short hinge region and a hemopexin-like domain. MMP-8 is heavily glycosylated.
